Things that make me happy: new Lisa Schroeder books. Things that make me ecstatic: TWO new Lisa Schroeder books in one year. Things that make me unable to talk like a rational person: the fact that one of them is about the end of the world.
All We Have Is Now is about the last 24-ish hours on earth. HOW AWESOME DOES THIS SOUND?!
“What do you do with your last day on earth?
Just over twenty-four hours are left until an asteroid strikes North America, and for Emerson and everyone else who didn’t leave, the world will end. But Emerson’s world already ended when she ran away from home. Since then, she has lived on the streets, relying on her wits and on her friend Vince to help her find places to sleep and food to eat.
The city’s quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then Emerson and Vince meet Carl, who tells them he has been granting people’s wishes — and gives them his wallet full of money.
Suddenly, this last day seems full of possibility. Emerson and Vince can grant a lot of wishes in one last day — maybe even their own.”
It comes out on July 28. Cannot. Wait.
